Flooding on A312 Uxbridge Road

October 31, 2011

I know that the following is not in Feltham North but it will be of interest to some.  I know that Hanworth Park Councillors have lobbied hard to get something done about this ongoing problem.  West Area Committee Members received the following today:

“Following our attendance at the recent West Area Committee meeting, I am writing to advise on the outcome of our site meeting with TfL on the A312 Uxbridge Road.

This meeting (with Phil Hurst from TfL) took place on Friday 30 September and after some primary investigations, Thames Water has agreed to undertake the following.

   Complete a descale from No 56 through to No 154 (500 metres). Followingthe descale a CCTV will be carried out to look for any structuraldefects in the sewer. Although a CCTV was carried out by TfL the resultsof this further examination would be more accurate following the removal of any debris as it may be at present hiding any faults.
   Should any faults be shown up following this closer investigation Thames Water will move to rectify them.

During Friday’s investigations it was identified that certain sections of the highway will require resurfacing due to depressions which are causing ponding. The volume of water has been overloading the gullies and more gullies are required to allow the water to pass through.

With this in mind, following the works by Thames Water, TfL will resurface areas of the highway where depressions are compounding the drainage problem and drainage improvement work will be carried out to include additional gullies. Work by TfL will also be carried out to clear existing debris which are blocking the gullies.

What I have been unable to ascertain is exactly when Thames Water will be undertaking this work. I realise this is important as TfL will be unable to start any resurfacing work until our sewer is checked and any necessary repairs undertaken. However, I am confident this will be carried out in good time.”

Walk down Uxbridge Road (as the rain came)

November 22, 2009

Took a walk earlier this morning.  A few things to report.  In Hampton Road West, I saw some tagging on the phone box:

The following was near 125 Uxbridge Road.  A door missing and some tagging (and leaves need clearing):

Difficult to see on this picture but there is some tagging on the glass/plastic – it is outside 120 Uxbridge Road:

A broken bin outside 153 Uxbridge Road.  I will ask for it to be replaced or repaired:

Some weeding needed – this is near to 136 Uxbridge Road:

The following two pictures at the entrance to St John’s Ambulance (next to 154 Uxbridge Road):

Finally,  the following sign is going to be replaced, along with two others in Feltham (one on the High Street and one in Hounslow Road in Feltham North).  I will ask for an update on by when this will be done?

Will report tomorrow morning.
